Airport star Jeremy Spake looks unrecognisable 18 years after finding TV fame

It was 2005 when Airport debuted on the BBC and made Jeremy Spake famous.

But in the 18 years since he found fame, working as a ground services manager for Russian airline Aeroflot, he's drastically changed his look.

These days, he's shaved off his hair and is rocking a bald head, and he still looks every bit the part as an airport professional.

Jeremy made the most of his fame at Heathrow as he took his platform and used it as a springboard to lots of exciting career opportunities.

His charming personality made him the perfect fit to host BBC's The Worst Job in Britain, in which he engaged with workers in some of the country's most challenging roles.

He also managed to showcase his skills as an author, writing two books — 'Jeremy's Airport' and 'The Toughest Job in Britain'.

In the book he reminisced over his time working at the airport as well as the heart-wrenching reality of what he saw while meeting those in the toughest jobs in the UK.

It looked like he had traded in his career for fame, but in truth, Jeremy, who speaks fluent Russian, was rising the ranks to become the Deputy Director of Isle of Man Airport.

But with his heart still set on Heathrow, he eventually returned to the airport he called home.

In the years since, he has shied away from the cameras, but in 2022, he decided to return to action and filmed The Airport: Back in the Skies.

In a programme filled with nostalgia, Jeremy caught up with his old pals and took a deeper look into how the Covid-19 pandemic impacted airports.

And he did it all with a brand new look.

The maverick has shaved off his chestnut hair and beard in favour of a tidy, shaven look.

But while his look has changed, his personality is exactly the same.

He charmed fans all-over again as he got stuck in to help prepare a Boeing 737 for flight and offered a helping hand to stranded tourists caught amidst the mayhem of cancelled flights.
